I'm currently 31 weeks and 2 days with my second daughter and I'm concerned about the symptoms I'm having. I went to the hospital with my first daughter at 36 weeks because my stomach was hurting me so bad I was not able to eat. They told me it was heartburn and sent me home. I subsequently went back to my OB complaining of constant headache and itching all over. Had I not been 17 at the time I would have done my research and found that these were all symptoms of pre-e. I carried my daughter to term but my BP was in the 200's and I don't want to go through this again. So now I am having the stomach pains again. Is this something I should go to L&D for or are they just going to tell me to tale Tums again?
